Complexity versus simplicity

Explain this:

1. The official rules of America’s pastime consist of 119 singled-spaced pages.

2. The official laws of the beautiful game, by contrast, take up less than 50 pages.

Why are the rules of baseball so much more complicated than the rules of soccer? Is there any testable cultural explanation for this disparity?
